When is it enough?

Hi guys, I have missed the interactions that used to be so frequent here. I have been mulling this over for a while and I just want to get others thoughts (even though it is not debt related)...A while ago a friend from high school posted a comment on Facebook about how her job didn't sound important or glamorous enough. My first thoughts were, “Are you kidding me!?!” This girl went to a private, relatively prestigious women’s college, served in the Peace Corps, speaks another language, travels the world frequently, and is currently serving as an elementary school teacher. She is the girl who got strait As and is stunningly beautiful. She is one of the classmates that I have always admired for everything she has accomplished. I strive to be more giving in part because of the sacrifices that I have seen her make for her students.
I have also been struggling personally with my accomplishments being/sounding significant. I never feel like it is enough. Ironically, the reason she made the post (I later found out) was because of the job titles on my Linkedin account. So…when will it be enough for me (and her and presumably a few others in my graduating class)? Is this a generational thing? Is this just something that came from how we challenged each other throughout school? What gives? Have any of you faced this issue?
